Andre Luther, drummer and back up vocalist. Jacques Lilavois, bassist and back up vocalist. Edu-Bahia, percussionist. Often times the band is a five piece with an additional percussionist making certain Brazilian sounds more complete.
In 1998 Bryan Avey, who grew up in Brazil since the age of three was a child of a missionary family, arrived in California from Brazil, with intent on developing this “Brazilian Reggae” he had in his mind. Bryan met Andre while attending a Brazilian church in Culver City, Ca. The next few years the two carried the band through some difficult times and a constant changing of musicians. EduBahia shared the vision of the music as well, being one who fervently loves reggae and Afro-Brazilian music.
The last member to join was Jacques Lilavois, of Haitian descent, a perfect feel for the bass. There is also an honorable mention...Jennifer V! Percussionist from East L.A. who has been several months now sitting in on the action! Read more on Last.fm.
